A Gent's Birthday.
I am trying to make a concerted effort to make a few more cards for the fellas than I have done previously. This card was a little number that allowed me to stamp my own background which I love, love, love while giving a nod to my Steampunk predilections. (*whispers* I secretly suspect that I love stamping my own backgrounds so much because then I don't have to cut into all the groovy designer paper that I hoard so...Sshhh.) Plus, Tim Holtz does indeed make this rather easy to do with his fun (and often fabulously funky) take on crafting. This birthday card used minimal supplies and was reasonably relaxing to do. A bit of willy nilly stamping, some snipping and chomping, a touch of acrylic finger painting, a little lassoing and...Ta da! Robert's your mothers brother.
